If you’re on the golf course, you can get a mulligan. When you’re betting NFL football in a “survivor” contest, you get a second chance. And if you can do it for your share of $100,000, that’s cool too.
That’s what you’ve got in front of you with the “2nd Chance $100,000 Survivor Contest” at BetOnline.
Here is how a survivor contest works: you have the chance to put forward one team a week, and that team has to win…. or else you’re out of the running. If you are successful, you move on. You’ve heard it out of coaches before – “win and advance.”
You’ve also heard “Go big or go home.” If you have been sent home, you have an opportunity to come back. And then you can REALLY mount a “comeback.”
You have until Monday, October 12 at 8:10 PM ET to register for your second chance. Remember that in order to do that, you must be an account holder at BetOnline, and that is a painless process.
And here’s the really good part – you can come in with multiple entries, which means that you can go way beyond just a second chance, instead getting a whole boatload of chances within that. Here is the schedule for that, as you can buy up to 25:
One entry: $25
Entries 2-5: $20 each
Entries 6-10: $15 each
Entries 11-25: $10 each
These fees are deducted from your BetOnline sportsbook balance. And if you notice, you’re getting one heck of a discount with these multiple entries.
Keep in mind that these are not point spread picks you’re making. You are looking for straight-up winners here. And perhaps you think it might make things easier that way.
But while the rules are relatively simple, clearing a path to the winners’ circle might not be.
Because this is a contest in which staying power is very important, your instinct is going to be to try to remain very much in the action while the other players fall by the wayside.
And how does that happen? Well, by choosing the teams that are most likely to win, and choosing them sooner. So you’ll be looking toward the bigger favorites – the “gimmes,” if you will.
So for example, if you were looking at a team that is a -400 favorite on the money line, with the underdog at +320. Well, you can interpolate those numbers and conclude that the favorite has a 78.3% chance of winning. So you will pick that team in the contest.
And that might be a relatively dominant team; one that you wouldn’t mind “following.” But the problem is that in this contest, you can’t do that. You’re not allowed to pick any team more than once. And if that is the case, you are going to get tighter odds as the contest progresses. That’s what makes it so intriguing, and so great.
If you can imagine it, you might actually need an underdog to win straight-up to get to the next level.
You can do your analysis on your prospective picks all the way up to five minutes before kickoff of the game they are playing in.
It’s a challenge, that’s for sure. But it’s rather low-risk fun. So our recommendation is that you buy as many entries as you possibly can.
Be that last player to SURVIVE, at BetOnline!
